The Nisargadatta Gita Bookby Pradeep Apte

DEDICATED TO THE GREAT MASTER

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

60.You have to realize that you are not

the body or the knowledge ‘I am’. You

as the Absolute are neither, nor do you require them.

When the knowledge ‘I am’ arose, you did not know what it was, it was just a feeling ‘you are’- absolutely non-verbal. You did not even know whether it was real or unreal, it was just there.
When verbalization was thru st on you, you made the first mistake of believing the ‘I am’ to be real.

The second mistake, which was hammered into you, was to believe that you are a person born with a body and living in this world. That you would die one day you inferred by seeing people around you die and these beliefs grew stronger on seeing births  and deaths occurring around you almost everyday.

What the Guru now tells you challenges all this, he tells you that you are neither the body nor the knowledge ‘I am’. He tells you that you are the formless Absolute and you do not require either of them, rather you were never them. The Guru can
say so as that is his realization and you have to have faith in his words.
